My wife and I had an early supper on 3 Jan 2013. The food (we had sushi) was great and the service on par (although the waiter did start becoming a bit absent towards the end of our meal).

We had an issue with the smoking section door being left open (which was only a few paces away from where we sat). Both the patrons and the waiters kept leaving the door open. Despite numerous requests (to the manager and waiters) to keep the door closed, it would still be left open. Surely, an automatic door or a door hinge (that closes the door on exit / entry) would solve this problem?

Despite this; not a bad experience. The casino does tend to be a bit loud with the bustle; therefore, we chose to sit deeper into the restaurant.

While passing through Bloemfontein I happened on a branch of Ocean Basket. Needed a good meal prior to a 14 hour bus ride to Cape Town. Service was excellent and the grilled calamari was the best I've had across 6 continents. I ate at Ocean Basket in two more locations and always found their service top notch and their food excellent. One of the best chains I've encountered.

This restaurant, reasonably-priced and in a nice part of the airport has a great atmosphere and delicious sea food. The menu is elaborate & can suit just about any hankering. Can't go wrong!

Well the food was decent. Its not like it was bad or unedible, however, there's nothing ot write home about with regards to Ocean Basket, the prices are pretty good however, and the service is better than the average.
